Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

So yesterday was the 'treason summit' between Putin and the Orange disaster (fill in your own name, I suggest two more in this song)

and late last night I thought, well, there should be a song out there about this...

this is a very quick write, just a chorus and two verses, and possibly will be expanded later ?

quick iPhone recording, too...

Lyrics: 

Treasonous Trump, Benedict Don
Whatever you call him, our democracy’s gone
Sinking ever faster, with the orange disaster
Treasonous Trump, Benedict Don

Time to say out loud what we’ve whispered till now
“high crimes and misdemeanors” cannot be allowed
Its high time we talked about that I-word
To pretend otherwise is more and more absurd

How many more indictments will it take
How many more layers of this devil’s food cake
How much more evidence does Congress need
Before it starts to intercede?

Treasonous Trump, Benedict Don
Whatever you call him, our democracy’s gone
Sinking ever faster, with the orange disaster
Treasonous Trump, Benedict Don

(c) M. Skliar 2018

I feel your frustration and certainly share the anger felt by many. You’ve put into words what so very many of us think.

Great subject and great song and just how I feel. He is a disaster of the highest order!

Classic Skliar upbeat protest song! Devil's food cake made me smile. Also need/intercede isn't a rhyme you hear often in songs, I appreciate Wink
